of how we keep guns out of places that they are not allowed to be in this country, the u.s. congress in 1988 passed something called the undetectable firearms act. it said basically, your gun has to be detectable in an x-ray scanner. it has to have the equivalent x-ray signature of 3.7 ounces of stainless steel, even if you take out the magazine and the stock and the grips. even with those parts taken off, the remaining guts of the gun need to have a substantial metal component. so they will be seen on an x-ray machine. because of that law, we do not have fully plastic guns. that law was first passed in 1988. it was not particularly controversial. the vote in the house on that was 413 to 4. and president ronald reagan signed it. and tyranny was not unleashed upon the land. it is not controversial now that it is illegal to manufacture or sell a gun in the united states that is built to evade detection by standard means. we don't have plastic guns. we banned plastic guns. the ban has been renewed several times since. it is up for renewal again next year. when it comes up for renewal ne

a sweeping conclusion. by the time his second midterm rolled around, truman was four months in to u.s. intervention in korea. an effort that republicans used against his party. eisenhower was saddled with a postwar economy. by the midterms in 1958, u.s. unemployment spiked to nearly 7%, double when he was first elected six years earlier. in the 2006, the u.s. was in to the iraq war and facing heavy rye lens and combination for president bush and his party. what about more president obama and the democrats? should they worry? i say maybe not so much. in 2010, the party lost 63 seats in the house, 6 seats in the senate. president obama famously called it an shallacking and it was. the likely scenario, limits the losses like reagan did or add seats like clinton. president obama almost guaranteed to do better in the house. hard to do worse than he did in the first midterm and then democrats have this helpful anecdote. if they hold on to the control of the senate, the president can declare partial victory for that. that was the importance of adding seats. republicans have to win six senate

of u.s. treasury bonds were going up. so the fact is that we have a problem. i'm hoping that we'll deal with it especially, you know, the old age entitlementes, because sooner or later you and i are going to be old enough to qualify for medicare, and we're going to at the present time to be a good system. but we i think a little rationality is called for. >> schieffer: you're saying it's not as bad as it seems. the fact of the matter swhen the bush tax cuts run out at the end of the year, when payroll tax-- whatever they call it, runs out at the end of the year, people's taxes are going to go up. they may not be a crisis for some of the upper income folk but if you're down the line there, that's a big deal. >> and i fully believe that's going to be taken care of. but if you remember, when the clinton tax cuts-- tax rates were imposed in 1993, martin felledsteen, you know, a very substantial economist wrote an op-ed in the "with the journal" that day predicting we were going into a deep recession pause of the tax rates. we went into a big boom. we're tingering on the edges here of a mass

midterm rolled around, harry truman was four months into u.s. intervention in korea. an effort that republicans used against his party. eisenhower was struggling with the economy. during the 2006 midterms, the u.s. was three years into the iraq war and facing heavy sectarian violence which hurt president bush and his party what are the lessons for president obama and the democrats? i say maybe not so much. here's why. in 2010 the party lost 63 seats in the house, 6 seats in the senate. president obama called it a shellacking. there is reason to think he will do better this time around. president obama is almost guaranteed to do better in the house. hard to do worse than what he did in his first midterm. democrats have this helpful antidote, if they hold on to control of the senate, the president can declare partial victory for that. that was the importance of democrats add two senate seats, sitting at 55. republicans have to win big, winning six senate seats is big. that's what they would have to do to get control in 2014. the gaggle will be back right after the break. the good
, what goes on here? what goes on? >> yeah. well, they can actually find out where the u.s. government is hiding. so that's not -- they can't all be in dick cheney's secret location. they can shut pieces of it down, but it's not really sustainable, obviously. it will increase the pressure in the sense of crisis. that's going to lead to more turmoil in the markets. so it's not a reassuring thing for your creditors if you either hide or you're shuffling money around. but it does apply increased pressure in washington. you know, this is where the white house wanted the negotiations in a way. i'm not saying that you can cook up a debt crisis or anyone would want to, but the president and his negotiators wanted both of these things to be done together, not to have tax cuts and all the horse trading around that now. and then in a few months' time have to go through the whole thing but on less favorable ground for the white house at least than talk about the debt ceiling. it's much better that it's one negotiation, it's one round of massive uncertainty if there's anything good that comes out
and the accountability review board. the u.s. house of representatives committee on foreign affairs will hold a hearing on thursday, december 20 on the benghazi attacke. secretary clinton will be testifying. c-span will cover this on thursday at 1:00 p.m. eastern time. c-span cameras will be there. front page of the national journal this morning -- on tuesday he delivered the gop talking points about the need for more spending cuts as part of any deal, while downplaying the role of raising income-tax rates on wealthier earners, which the white house trumpets often. boosting rates on the rich, he said, would provide enough money to run the government for eight days. that has nothing to do with spending, getting spending in line. other than performing requisite task, mitch mcconnell has not emerged as a huge presence in the ongoing fiscal cliff narrative. that is a change from past budget and tax deals where his finger prints were evident, a fact that could affect the final outcome or subtlety of the deal. that the national journal reporting. paul is an independent in enterprise, alabama. go ahead. calle
. discretionary turns out to be the easier nut to crack because that money doesn't go out the door unless this u.s. house of representatives acts. that distinguishes it, mr. speaker, from mandatory spending. that's the third set of columns on my chart. mandatory spending, as i said, 2/3 of our budget, 68.3% to be precise, and of all the sequestration cuts, 63.8% of the budget is only going to bear 14.4% of the pain. the back story there, mr. speaker, is that's the only 14.4% of the pain. as i said discretionary spending has been on the chopping block in 2011, 2012, and now again in 2013. but mandatory spending we haven't had a single agreement about, and i don't hear the white house talking about it, either. the white house put together a group it was called the simpson-bowles commission. it was named afterers kin bowles, a former clinton chief of staff, and alan simpson, former republican senator. and they came together and what the president called his deficit reduction commission to give the president and -- an idea what we could do to get our fiscal house in order. i want to show in you this c
